With Fr. John and Mrs. Blentlinger’s blessing, effective immediately, we are moving the Divine Mercy Chaplet from the Chapel at 3:30 pm to the School Auditorium at 3:00 pm. Students will pray in their classrooms and visitors and parents will pray in the auditorium.
What a blessing it is to go from about 20 people praying in the Chapel to about 400 at IC School!!
If we don't teach our children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to! With the blessings of both Bishop Taylor of Little Rock and Bishop Slattery of Tulsa, we will be conducting a survey about the future of a Catholic high school in the River Valley.
Ready for next school year?? Take a look at what we are going to be doing next year!
In the meantime, have a fun and safe summer!
Mrs. Mulson and her family have recently moved to Fort Smith from Richland, Washington. Mrs. Mulson and her husband, Troy, have two children; Adde will be a senior at Greenwood and Collin will start college at UAFS. Mrs. Mulson has taught at Catholic schools her entire teaching career; her most recent position was 4 years in first grade at Christ the King Catholic School in Richland. She is a caring and enthusiastic individual and is an exciting addition to I.C. School family!
We know summer and you probably don't want to know anything about school but we thought you probably wanted to see the class lists for the 2015-2016 school year.
Have a great summer!
See you in the Fall!! (Or next week if you are coming to Summer Care)
God of wisdom,
We thank you for all the gifts you have given us throughout this school year. We praise you for giving us life, for saving us in Christ, and for choosing us to be your people. As we come to the end of this school year, we voice our gratitude for the good things you have done in us, and we praise you for all who have shared in the work of our school. We ask you to bless them in your love and give them refreshment and peace. We praise you, God, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns forever and ever.od of wisdom,
Our dear Jose Manjarrez won an iPad this morning from United Federal Credit Union!! His name was drawn from a basket of 15 students that had perfect attendance, no unexcused tardies or unexcused early outs this school year. Congratulations Jose!!!

Our 6th graders posed with the crucifixes they made in Art Class. They were blessed by Fr. Andrew during the school’s prayer service.
The Hot Chocolate Kids, a group of students from IC School, raised $5,470.00 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The “Kids” set up a hot chocolate stand in their neighborhood during the Christmas Holidays. They sold hot chocolate and other goodies to people driving around and viewing their festive neighborhood. They were able to present their hard earned money during a radio marathon for the Make-a-Wish Foundation in April. The group will get to be involved with the granting of a wish to an area child. The average cost of a wish is $5,000.00. The group plans on making this an annual event.
Cristian Martinez, a 6th grade student at IC School, was honored at the Arkansas Art Center in Little Rock on Saturday, May 2, 2015 for having his artwork, an oil pastel of cactus, selected to be a part of the 54th Annual Young Arkansas Artist’s Exhibition. He received two prize awards for his school’s art department: $250 from Arkansas Children’s Hospital for being selected as one of 106 pieces from over 450 entries to be exhibited in the show, and $200 from The Fine Arts Club of Arkansas for being chosen Best Of Class for 6th Grade. His work will hang at the
Arkansas Art Center at MacArthur Park in Little Rock through July and then be a part of a traveling exhibition for another year.

Quiz Bowl is a quiz game that tests players on a wide variety of academic subjects. The elementary quiz bowl tournament was for non public schools and was sponsored by Trinity Jr. High. Our team won first place going undefeated in the tournament against teams from Christ the King, St. Boniface and First Lutheran. The kids practiced for an hour and a half every week answering sample questions and gaining skill using buzzers which are required in tournament play. The kids also used trivia games online and researched many academic areas including both World and U.S. History, several areas of Science, English, Literature and even Music. They also spent time practicing their math computation skills and speed in solving the problems.
